    • Set a Label to display instead of the name
    • new default: projectsStorageType defaults to db (see below)
  • Job reference steps:
    • Can reference jobs via UUID as well as group/name, so you can rename jobs #3115

    • Notifications for referenced jobs are triggered
    • Statistics (success/duration) of referenced jobs are updated

    • Separate notifications for failure vs. retryable failure (i.e.) #2864
  • Job Definition visibility ACL:
    • A new ACL access level view is a subset of the read access level for jobs, and does not allow users to view the “Definition” tab of a Job, or download the XML/YAML definitions.

    • Writeable sources allow updating node data via API

Bug fixes:

  • many

Potentially breaking changes:

RPM spec:

The rundeck user/group is now created within system UID ranges #3195.

ACLs: Edit Project Configuration/Nodes GUI access level requirements changed:

Previously: GUI actions “Project > Edit Configuration” and “Project > Edit Nodes” required admin project access. Now: only configure level access is required.

NOTE: API behavior was always this way, so this change simply aligns the access requirements.

Potential security implications:

  • users/roles granted configure access to a project will now be able to modify Project Nodes or Configuration via the GUI
  • the same users/roles would already have this access if using the API

See: #3084

ACLs: Job Definition visibility

A new ACL access level view is a subset of the read access level for jobs, and does not allow users to view the “Definition” tab of a Job, or download the XML/YAML definitions.

ACLs which allow read to Jobs, will work as before. To disallow Job Definition viewing/downloading, you should change your ACLs to only allow view access.

Project Storage Type is now db by default:

If you want to continue using filesystem storage for project config/readme/motd files, you will need to set this in your before upgrading:


Upgrading an existing filesystem configuration to db is automatic, and project configs/readme/motd will be loaded into DB storage at system startup.

To encrypt the DB storage, you will need to enable encryption for the “Project Configuration” storage layer.
